Fur buying session
February is always the month for the annual fur buying session in this part of the country.
Mr. Miller, the buyer is showing the girls how to grade the hide. He loves to teach the kids this art.

Elizabeth says, "Hey Grandma is even here with her camera!"
The blacksmith showed the son his new friction folder knives. For some reason, the blacksmith came home with one less knife after this picture was taken.
In this photo you can see a red fox and two bob cats.
The son and grand daughter.
